Screen Highlights August 17

10am | SlowTV Djilba Day

Djilba (August-September) is the fifth season in the Nyoongar Calendar. This is the season of growth, as the weather begins to warm up. Djilba season is a time to look for the yellow and cream flowers starting on mass.
As the season progresses and the temperatures continue to rise, we'll start to see the flower stalks of the balgas emerging in preparation for the coming Kambarang season.
The vivid beauty and life of Perth’s natural wonders are paired with small pieces of information found on the KURONGKURL KATITJIN page of the ECU website.
 
12pm | Science Week | SCINEMA Screenings: South America
 
SEVEN WORLDS ONE PLANET - SOUTH AMERICA (United Kingdom)
49 minutes
Directed by Chadden Hunter
From the bone-dry deserts of the Atacama, where penguins weave their way through a minefield of snapping sea lions, to the lush cloud forests of the Andes, where Andean bears scale 30-metre trees in search of elusive fruits, South America is full of the unusual and ingenious. Narrated by Sir David Attenborough.
 
SKY ISLANDS: A TIME TRAVEL IN THE ANDES MOUNTAINS (Netherlands)
13:58 minutes
Directed by Catalina Giraldo
A unique visual of one ecological chapter in the history of the Northern Anden Mountains in South America. This film visualises how an extraordinary ecosystem, a refuge of unique diversification and a hotspot of biodiversity, called Paramo, took at least two million years of evolution.
 
5:30pm | SlowTV Djilba Sunset
 
6pm | Science Week | NASA: Earth as Art
 
For over 40 years, the Landsat program has collected spectral information from Earth’s surface, creating a historical archive unmatched in quality, detail, coverage, and length.
In Earth as Art, we display the Earth as our eyes cannot see it—in creative combinations of visible and infrared light. These unreal views of farmland, coastlines, and snowscapes remind us of the powerfully artistic qualities of Earth’s land features.
